Review quote

"Far more than a simple cookbook, the authors preface the recipes with dozens of pages outlining the principles and benefits of dehydration...Fully half the book is dedicated to recipes on using your home-dehydrated foods actively as ingredients, rather than thinking of them as standalone foods. For example, a layered melange of dehydrated vegetables in a jar makes a simple just-add-water soup that is not just handy, but makes a thoughtful gift. Smoothies can brim with the flavor of ripe summer fruit year-round."--Sean Timberlake"Punk Domestics.com" (09/29/2014) "This quickly became one of the most valued books in my library...I can point to numerous examples of things that I just did not know even after three years of dehydrating...You need this book first--BEFORE you start. And you need to pay special attention to the first three chapters--25 pages of easy, enjoyable, plain English reading with plenty of timesaving tips, troubleshooting sections, and references of other places to look in the book for related reading. Once you have done that, you can begin to use this book as your standard, go-to reference for specifics on dehydrating particular goods for particular purposes."--Jo Rellimi"Homestead Chronicles.com" (10/11/2014) "I was intrigued by the part of the title that mentioned 398 recipes. That alone is a lot of recipes, but for dehydrating food that is huge! I mean how many things can you really dehydrate and/or make with dehydrated food?..."Apparently tons!" Besides giving you a mega list of recipes, it teaches you how dehydration works...Whether you are a newbie to dehydrating or a seasoned vet, I guarantee that you will learn new, amazing and inspirational things that you will not find in any other book of this genre."--Sharon Pannell"The Trailer Park Homesteader blog" (11/05/2014) "If you are serious about creating a PREPared kitchen, a dehydrator is a must-have tool for your kitchen, and "The Ultimate Dehydrator Cookbook" belongs on your shelf. It's really that good."--Jane Baldwin"momwithaprep.com" (11/12/2014) "From camping foods to holiday feasts, there is something for everyone...and from now on, this is the book I will be recommending. Those new to dehydrating will appreciate the alphabetical list of instructions for almost every fruit and veggie you can think of. Those who already have jars and jars of dehydrated food on the shelves will appreciate the HUNDREDS of recipes making use of them. This is truly the only book on the subject you will ever need."--Lanette Lepper"Mother Earth News.com" (10/02/2014)
